TICKETS ON SALE NOW (LINKS BELOW)
April 19, 2018 — React Presents is proud to announce HIGHER & HIGHER – a brand-new summer party taking place at Cerise on the rooftop of the Virgin Hotels Chicago every first Saturday of the month from June to September.
The “friendly rooftop DJ battle” will feature party curators Aux Cord DJs versus party series Open4Mat, License To Sail (representing the 80’s) versus Crossfader Kings(representing the 90’s), Chance The Rapper collaborators Joey Purp versus Stefan Ponce, and Soul Summit versus Windy City Soul Club.
Higher & Higher draws inspiration from the concept of a “sound clash” – which historically pits DJ crews up against each other in public indoor/outdoor settings. Sound clashes are most associated with Jamaica, featuring reggae and dancehall, dating back to the 1950s. Some of these clashes even turned violent and resulted in competitors trashing each other’s equipment. It’s safe to assume this run of parties will end a whole different way – with plenty of rooftop cocktails, downtown views and Summertime Chi. All while featuring some of city’s strongest party series, dance nights and DJ crews battling for the dance floor.
The party comes complete with a rooftop BBQ featuring a menu filled with delicious selections from Chicago Dogs to veggie kabobs, ice cream treats, and of course ice cold cocktails from Monaco. The first party takes place on Saturday, June 2nd and wraps up the 2018 season on Saturday, September 1st.
